, killing more than 30. bob orr is in washington, he's our homeland security correspondent and, bob, what's behind this uptick in these drone strikes just today? >> reporter: well, norah, i think we can say the surge we're seeing in drone strikes is clearly aimed at trying to disrupt any potential attack plans about dplaep yemen. the u.s. here is sending a pretty clear psychological message that the drones are on constant patrol, scouting for targets. it's interesting to note there have only been 12 drone strikes in yemen all year up until july 27, but that was about the time that u.s. intelligence overheard al qaeda leaders plotting imminent attacks and then everything changed. we've now seen five drone strikes in just the last three days. by the way, it's also interesting, all the militants who have been killed have been hit while riding in small groups inside vehicles. >> o'donnell: so what do we know about who is being targeted by the drone strikes? >> sources tell us most of those who who have been killed so far were terrorist foot soldiers, four were described as mid-level gro

today at suspected terrorists in yemen. homeland security correspondent bob orr is in washington following that story. bob? >> reporter: norah, the threat remains tonight and officials still fear that an al qaeda attack on some western target could happen. but both the u.s. and yemeni governments today turned up pressure on al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. in yemen's capital of sana'a soldiers are stopped vehicles and frisking passengers looking for suicide bombers. it's part of a security crackdown which yemeni officials say has stopped attacks inside the country aimed at oil and gas operations. authorities say al qaeda terrorists had planned to attack strategic coastal energy terminals with the goal of taking hostages and killing foreign workers. that plan may have been inspired by a january attack in algeria in which dozens of workers were killed when islamist militants stormed a gas plant. while the yemeni government claimed it had foiled the latest plot, there were no reports of any arrests and u.s. intelligence sources cautioned the larger threat which has closed down 19
